Tonight I was able to go to the Dogwood Festival’s preview party, being held at MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta) during their current exhibit, The Next Wave,
The South’s Next Wave: Design Challenge
November 11, 2012 – March 31, 2013
The South: home to numerous design talents, both emerging and seasoned. The Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) thinks it’s time to prove it. This fall, the museum presents The South’s Next Wave: Design Challenge, part exhibition, part competition; the exhibition pairs designers of interior spaces with object designers to create imaginative vignettes throughout the museum.
Curators David Goodrowe and Tim Hobby co-founders of Aesthetic Identity Design™ firm Goodrowe | Hobby™ have directed the work of set /interior designers and of object designers in fields from furniture to fashion who exemplify the myriad new directions the Southern aesthetic has taken.
Each vignette is technologically enabled with the Skovr app, allowing viewers i to access facts and video about the designers while in the galleries or from their own homes.
During the run of the exhibition, MODA visitors will be asked to choose their favorite vignette and object. Winning earns the designer more than bragging rights – there is a cash prize
That was from their website … So we stayed a bit, drank some wine, had a nibble, pushed some buttons, and cast our ballot for who we liked best. Very colorful displays to choose from. I bet you can guess my vote. It was a blast taking photos and checking out all the work that went into these little vinettes. What a treat. Good Luck Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully Blue! I vote for you!
